10-15 days

Seed Depth:
1/4"

2 seeds every 4"

Row Spacing:
12"-18"

Thinning:
When 2" tall,

1 every 4"


When to sow outside: 4 to 6 weeks before average last frost or as soon as the soil can be worked. Note: Unseasonable cold weather later in the growing season may cause some of the onions to bolt early.

When to start inside: RECOMMENDED. 8 to 12 weeks before average last frost. The earlier the start, the bigger/earlier the bulb is produced. Transplant outdoors when 2" - 4" tall.

Harvesting: When some of the onion tops have fallen over, knock the rest over. In a week or two when most of the foliage has dried and turned brown, dig up the onions with a garden fork. Pull up the onions and dry them in the garden in the sun for a few days. After drying, remove the roots and greens, but leave about 1" of the neck to seal and prevent entrance of decay organisms.
